Interview with Lacey Silks, Author of Silver Hunter
22 Sep 2022
What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Silver Hunter?
Career women aspiring to form families were the inspiration behind the story.
As for the reverse age gap, Madonna. She did an interview with Ellen who asked her about the age of her youngest partner in the last five years. Madonna replied, 22. While the age gap between Hunter and Grace is not as wide, their 16-year difference is definitely significant enough.
If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Silver Hunter, what would they be?
Whenever I write about a book with an exotic scene (this time it was Costa Rica), I obsess with Africa, by Toto.
What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?
I read across most romance genres but my favourite books always have suspense. I write in three genres to help clean my palate (romantic suspense, romantic comedy, and reverse harem).
What books are on your TBR pile right now?
Last read: Verity by Colleen Hoover. Current read: Broken Bonds by J Bree, next read: Love You Again by Julian Kent.
What scene in your book was your favorite to write?
Costa Rica! Hunter sweeps Grace off her feet to Costa Rica to keep her safe from a predator back in New York. I loved putting Grace out of her element and showing Hunter’s Tarzan skills 😉 Plus, it doesn’t get better than getting it on underneath a waterfall, does it? (*coughs* not talking from experience)
Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)
My office space is a Central Park themed Friends zone and sets the perfect writing atmosphere. I keep a little troll keychain with spiky blue hair I’ve had since high school (It’s been a while) for good luck. On the wall above my laptop, I have a page filled with affirmations I received from a reader which I read through every morning. Here’s one: “I have the power to change my world and my perception of it by the words that I use.”
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
I do. I don’t remember who told me this, but at a difficult point in my life someone said to me, “Even this shall pass.” The saying is that it can be used in many ways: when you’re faced with an illness, a challenging task which seems impossible to complete, or even a tragedy. Even though we’re often left with scars on our hearts, time heals.
If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?
Families come in all “shapes and sizes”. Love heals and time heals, and the bad guys get exactly what they deserve.
